"There is no firm boundary where outer space starts. However the Kármán line, at an altitude of 100 km (62 mi) above sea level, is conventionally used as the start of outer space in space treaties and for aerospace records keeping."--Wikipedia
Wikipedia.. give me a break.
@Existentior: Supply a better definition then...I'm all ears.

An astronaut is 72 miles in space

So basically, if you are flying an international commercial flight at an altitude of 38000 feet, you are just about where outer space begins?
No. You need to climb 10 times that altitude; to about 327,360 feet (62 miles x 5,280 feet)
